Is It Now?

Just saw Minority Report” tonight. I have to say that I really enjoyed it. While A.I.” was creepy and unsatisfying to me (I kept thinking that Kubrick would have done things differently and better) I found that Spielberg has made his most fully realized and rounded film in a long time. Philip K. Dick wrote some amazing stories and they make you question reality, destiny and institutions…stuff that makes you look at the world in a different way. The film seems particularly timely now with the emerging police state, surveillance and targeted advertising. I just love stuff that questions reality, chronology and truth. The title of this post is my absolute favourite line from a movie in a long time…a woman who can see the future asks, Is it now?”
